I prefer GSX myself but the budget doesn't stretch to it when I have VPC on the MSDN disks... (there's a lot of mileage you can get out of 30 day demos though). I once worked for a place that had about 2 dozen VMWare workstation installations.. they sold their customers time on 'dell servers' which they were, technically... just dell servers running lots of copies of VMWare workstation. I don't think they're doing that any more (I hope). > If it really is a GSX server I don't think that will be the case. > VMware server virtualization is really dazzlingly solid in my > experience. Though I must say that I have only very little experience Agreed. Other than networking issues they're damned good. I wouldn't attempt VMWare shared volumes though.. the one time I tried to use them it bluescreened the server - not been brave enough since. Tony
